For a very special family..

Today is the day that a bloggy tweep friend (how's that for a description??) and her husband are expanding their family by two. The two sweet little girls (sisters) that they are adopting are coming HOME. <3  A number of us are throwing an online "shower" of sorts for the family, as well, we're over the MOON for this family, and well, the original timeline had the girls coming home to them in JULY. and yes, today is June 2. Funny how things work, eh? I went shopping and bought some stuff for the girls yesterday, and will be sending their a gift today (as well as something for the new mom & dad), but I knew I needed a special card for the family to say congratulations & welcome. 

So I pulled out my favorite set ATM - Little Me by Unity Stamp Co. (Isn't it cute? Trust me, you'll be seeing a lot of it over the next lil while.) Anyway, I stamped the mom & little girl and then the dad & little boy, but purposely neglected to stamp his hair so I could try and turn him into a little girl too to represent the two sisters. And I think that honestly, I did all right. Unfortunately neither of the girls has curly hair, but hey, creative license. The DSP is by My Mind's Eye (Tickled Pink), and the rest is SU. Inside I stamped "Children reinvent your world for you" from a MFT set, and then wrote "welcome to the world of parenthood"... perfect, no? Oh and the pennants on the paper to me say "WOOHOO!" which is of course, how excited I am for these folks.

I wanted to include a card for the girls as well, but was stumped. Then it hit me. Remember the card I made for the first SOS challenge (ribbon)? When I was making it, I kept thinking "door mat".. so I had stamped "welcome home"... and it's all green and pink & orange (perfect girly colors), so I think I will include this card with their goodies.
